You really can’t go wrong with a messy/romantic bun with curly tendrils.. Just take a ponytail and twirl it around a rubberband (huge no-no but it really secures the hair.. I swear).. Get it to look exactly the way you like and use Goody Twist Pins and just twist them into your hair.. I have thick, unruly hair and this works for me 🙂  I LOVE these pins.. I use at least 2 or 3 of them at a time..

Last step, take a curling iron and wrap a couple of side strands of hair around the iron to get those curly tendrils!

I mostly learned how to do my hair through trial and error. Tutorials that I found on Pinterest are always great, and my regular stylist offers a “show me how” thing where she shows you how to do a certain style for free. 

Bobby pins are a pain. I put them in wrong for the longest time (the flat side is supposed to go up), and when I worked at a salon, they constantly yelled at me because they were in wrong and you could see them (they will NOT stay if I try to slide them in to my hair so you can’t see them, versus perpendicular to my hair).

Really the only way to learn is to keep trying. If you have a friend or family member with similar hair see if you can play with theirs a little- it can be easier to try new styles on someone else where you can see what you are doing.  Other then that though, you kinda of have to go through the process.  Most people who are good a doing hair have a million ugly loose braids, buns, twists and disaster hair styles that they put in and pulled right out and tried again.

Google is my Best friend when it comes to hair because I too know nothing about hair styling. I just search for something like long wavy hair updo or casual long wavy hair.

@vorpalette:  Holy cow, what??? I’ve been using bobby pins wrong my whole stinking life then! Just this morning I took one out and re-did it because the flat side was up. It just looks so….wrong to me. I do have curly/texturized hair so they are pretty much hidden no matter what but still. HOLY CRAP.

@peachacid:  slightly open the pin till its in your hair then just slide it on in. If your really struggling to keep it in, put it in as normal (flat side down)then once its pushed in, lift up the closed end, and turn it back on itself (so that it turns upside down and the flat side is now on your head) If this doesnt work, try crossing the pins in an X shape across each other, the pins are more visible this way but a lot more secure.

Try youtube for simple hairstyles, there are hundreds of them and are really good with a bit of practice!

or try open pins,they look like bobby pins that have been stretched open. They are better at holding hair when its already up,like in a messy bun, pop an open pin in,push it all the way down and voila, all done!

@peachacid:  

good luck with that. I would never be able to get my hair to stay in a bin with bobby pins. Someone linked those spin pins, which work for my heavy hair. I guess I don’t get what you’re trying to do with h bobby pins for a bun.
